HLS: When legal scholars become media stars

Toobin, a former editor of the Harvard Law Review, captivated the crowd early with his surreal description of a courtroom full of people tapping their feet to Michael Jackson’s song “Thriller.” It was played, he said, as part of a documentary on the singer that was viewed as evidence at his 2005 trial on charges of child molestation.

Sure, we have Guitar Hero and Rock Band, but those are music performance games. There was Michael Jackson Moonwalker, a 1990 Sega arcade game. And a strange KISS-inspired Dreamcast game. And Peter Gabriel's EVE, which is more like an interacive CD-ROM than a game. And a Chemical Brothers Flash game for the single Galvanize, which now seems to be offline. And one of my former students, Rob Fitzpatrick, made a game adaptation of a single from the band The Most.
